5.0 out of 5 stars Super Camera, 6 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Canon EOS 100D DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm III Lens - Black (18MP, CMOS Sensor) 3 inch Touch Screen LCD (Electronics)
We bought this camera to replace our Canon 1000D. In the Canon range, this is in the entry-level category. Being avid hobbyists on a budget we bought this camera with standard lens and have been very pleased. We decided against the IS (Image Stabilizer) lens, to keep the budget under control and haven't regretted it. In low-light conditions the high ISO ranges mean the added sensitivity more than compensates. We took photos in the Rijksmuseum with no flash on ISO 6400 and got great results even of dark flemish paintings. The menus are easy to use, and for people who want to apply their own settings, there is an easy to reach aperture button now which is a big plus. As mentioned elsewhere, the auto focus is a bit wonky on video setting, not something that concerned us since we didn't buy this camera to make videos with. This camera also has a 'live view' feature which enables you to see the photo on the LCD as you are taking it. I didn't see any reason for this feature, but actually I've found it useful a few times, for example when I want to hold the camera up over head, or when setting up the camera on a tripod (or other stationary object) for a group shot or where it's not easy to see through the viewfinder. All in all great camera.
